St Luke’s Hospice is opening a new shop in Crewe and is appealing for the community’s support.

The shop in Market Street will officially open its doors to customers on Thursday 14th November, but is in desperate need of donations of stock and also volunteers to help in the shop.

Steven Holmes, Retail Operations Manager for St Luke’s Hospice, said: “We are delighted to be opening a new shop in Crewe and really hope the community will get behind the Hospice.

“There are so many ways you can support us, not just by popping in to browse the shelves, but by donating good quality clothing and household items. Just one bag of donated goods can raise on average £19 for the Hospice, so you really are making an important contribution towards patient care at St Luke’s. People can pick up one of our collection bags instore and return to any St Luke’s shop.

“We are also in need of volunteers to support the daily running of the shop, from sorting through donated items to serving on the till. Volunteering is a great way to make new friends and learn new skills while supporting St Luke’s Hospice at the same time.

“However, you choose to support us we look forward to welcoming you to the shop over the coming weeks.”
